I would like to ask how can other language versions of Wikiquote be created. Incidentally I have quite a large collection of quotations (from my now offline website) that I would like to transfer to the Polish incarnation of Wikiquote. Can it be done ? Mav proposed on textbook.wikipedia.org that .../wiki/... part of the URL path can be made into
.../fr/... and so on. What do you think ?

Well as I am not a developer, i can't do anything. you have to qwiat till Brion, stes up different language versions. eg. en.wikiquote.org/, fr.wikiquote.org, pl.wikiquote.org. Wiktionary hasn;t even got different langauge versions yet. Altough Brion is hopeong to change the format to http://primaryname.org/language/article -fonzy
Is Wikiquote suitable place for buzzwords, memes, and everyday household names like "the global village" by McLuhan ? Kpjas 16:15 13 Jul 2003 (UTC)
The developer team at Wikimedia is making some changes to how accounts work, as part of our on-going efforts to provide new and better tools for our users like cross-wiki notifications. These changes will mean you have the same account name everywhere. This will let us give you new features that will help you edit and discuss better, and allow more flexible user permissions for tools. One of the side-effects of this is that user accounts will now have to be unique across all 900 Wikimedia wikis. See the announcement for more information.
Unfortunately, your account clashes with another account also called Fonzy. To make sure that both of you can use all Wikimedia projects in future, we have reserved the name Fonzy~enwikiquote that only you will have. If you like it, you don't have to do anything. If you do not like it, you can pick out a different name.
Your account will still work as before, and you will be credited for all your edits made so far, but you will have to use the new account name when you log in.
